Wigneswarn asked to celebrate ‘A Dat of Mourning’


Northern Province Chief Minister C. V. Wigneswaran had appealed to the people to treat today (18) as ‘A Day of Mourning’ and observe three minutes silence in memory of those who lost their lives during the final stages of the war.

The commemoration week of the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) would conclude with a programme on the Vellamulliwaikkal beach in Mullaitivu.

The Chief Minister had also asked Tamils living in other parts of the world to engage in commemoration activities to coincide with the remembrance programme in Mulliwaikkal.

He had requested Tamils overseas to show their support for the programme in their own countries by observing three minutes silence at 9.30 am in honour of those that lost their lives on this day so many years ago and to call upon the government of Sri Lanka to expedite investigations into war-crimes allegations.
